Very nice application very nice!

I have been trying a couple of those but this one, even if not perfect is the best I've found so far.

After one day of trying I already donate!


To the developer,
why not add the blacklist feature onto the submenu?
It would be much easier to blacklist an application this way instead of searching the hard disk for that application.

Also it would be great, if an application that is klicked on, automatically gets focus.
It should be a more natural feel without having to worry which programs has to be focused or unfocused.

A kind of Auto-pilot.


Anyway, this is a great piece of software!

Thanks a lot for this very helpful tool.

before I forget,
I was not able to blacklist Skype and the finder...

I keep trying to download this and unzip; nothing happens, I can not even search and find the app? I am desperate to try it out

This blows away all the other processor "freezing" Applications out there, the app itself is easy to get to grips with for the average user and there are more than enough options within for even the most diehard Mac fans.

I found this app after seaching for prices of new G5's.
At the time "Mr Gecko" had only just started to code it, from that day the updates have just gotton better and better.
If you thinking of buying a new Mac because that old G4 just doesn't cut it anymore, give "Freezer" a go first.

Just don't forget to donate if you like it.
